Sid Glassner(Hour 3b, c) Senior Fellow Sid Glassner displayed his education swag with us again.  He quizzed us with a couple of Common Core questions.

We failed the quiz.

Glassner has a one question quiz for the proponents of Common Core.  How are they going to evaluate if the standards are better?

Failing a different test was the Manchester School Board at the public hearings for the Manchester Academic Standards.  Glassner described the “professional discourtesy and incredible disservice to taxpayers” that he witnessed there.

We discussed the influence of corporate America on today’s public schools.  Education centers or Corporate Training Centers?

“We are short-changing our children,” said Glassner, “internships are fine, but the focus should be on learning, not training.”
